One of the most recognizable constellations in our night sky, the 7 main stars which form the Plough stand out pretty well in the northern hemisphere, look a bit closer and you can see more, a "larger bear", the Latin translation for Ursa Major, something like 13 stars to form one constellation.

On this night, all the stars in the Big Dipper shone brightly, but with a longer exposure even more stars become visible, which kinda makes the other 7 stars of the plough get lost amongst all the other background stars, the image didnt come out as well as intended but i shall upload it anyway.
